Re: Gears for levelwind? Spare part for Okuma.
I broke this gear before and went back to fix it but it broke again. But when I went back to fix it the distributorship apparrantly switched hands and the shop I bought both the reel and spare part from can't/won't sell that spare part to me anymore and the new distributor doesn't have it.
Any idea where to buy gears in Singapore? Something of that size and shape? Picture below.
If I not mistaken Siow Chiang use to distribute them, now it's a Malaysian company. You should be able to find out which company by grabbing an old copy of Rod and Line magazine. Sorry, I can recall.
Yup I know. Rapala has taken over the distributorship. Thanks anyway for the help.
Asked them already and they don't seem to have the gear in stock as this is an old model. But the reel is still on both the US and International websites.
I actually went to Siow Chang 1 month ago and managed to buy that particular spare part, that's why I'm quite surprised that they dont have it anymore, both Siow Chang and Rapala.
Just wondering cos Siow Chang still has some Okuma reels on sale (not refering to those in the bargain corner), I wonder if anything goes wrong/spoils and if it still is under the warranty how does the customer get about fixing it?
